Larry L. Hoff

            Larry L. Hoff, 83, of Frederick Living and formerly of Pennsburg, passed

away on Friday, October 13th, 2023. He was the beloved husband of Emily (Beard) Hoff.  The couple celebrated 65 years of marriage.

            Born in East Greenville, PA, he was a son of the late Edward and Margaret (Swenk) Hoff.

            He graduated from Upper Perkiomen High in 1958. In high school, he was a star athlete, and played football, basketball, and baseball. He served as the captain of both the basketball and the baseball team and received All Bux-Mont honorable mention honors in both sports. He was named first team All Bux-Mont in baseball during his junior and senior years. At graduation, he received the Thomas A. Aliff Football Award. He was also a member of the 1954 Upper Perk Knee-Hi 13-15 team and participated in the State Tournament. He was a standout player for the Upper Perkiomen American Legion baseball team as well.

            At age 16, he became a member of the Limeport AA team in the Tri-County Baseball League. Larry received invitations to try out for the Phillies, the Cleveland Indians, and the St. Louis Cardinals. Following his playing years, Larry was a coach in the Upper Perk Little League, the Junior Legion Baseball program, and the Senior Legion Baseball program where he guided his teams to two league championships and five straight regional appearances.

            After his coaching career, Larry served as Commissioner of the Bux-Mont Legion Baseball program for 20 years. He also served for 6 years on the Upper Perk Recreation Council. He was also an avid bowler who bowled two perfect games on the East Greenville Fire Company lanes. He was inducted into the Pottstown Bowling Association Hall of Fame and bowled in the State tournament for over 30 years. He was also an avid golfer and was a member of the PGA. He even had a hole-in-one at Twin Ponds Golf Course.

            Larry worked for Knoll in East Greenville, rising to Senior Design Assistant. He even received a patent for his design work. He served as a volunteer fire fighter for the East Greenville Fire Company for over 25 years. He was a life-long member of Pennsburg United Church of Christ, where he served on consistory, sang on the choir, served as church sexton for many years, and managed the cemetery committee.

            Along with his wife, Larry is survived by his three children: Peter and his wife Victoria, James and his wife Lisa, and Lori, wife of John Hawkins. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Jeanine Bonner (Richard), Dayna Kramer (Kevin), Andrew Hawkins, Thomas Hawkins (Devon); and his great-grandchildren: Oliver, Emmitt, Prudence, Kora, Kolton, Kaci, Theta, and Jack. He was predeceased by his brother, David "Birdie" Hoff in 2011.

            At Larry's request, his services will be held privately.

            In lieu of flowers, contributions are suggested in his memory to Pennsburg UCC, 775 Main St., Pennsburg, PA 18073.
